We love to travel to find new birds and participate in a lot of bird counts. We also created a Guide to Birding Field Guides and host a collection of over 200 birding links from all over the globe.


While our main focus continues to be birds, we promote other areas of conservation as well. Conserving land not only benefits wildlife, but is hugely beneficial to people as well.

Year of the Young Birder

2013 is officially The Year of the Young Birder! We plan on spending the whole year promoting young birder clubs and sharing ideas on how to help student naturalists become lifelong conservationists.

    Bird Photography Weekly is a great idea (and left us at 10,000 Birds kicking ourselves for not thinking of it first!).

    I hope 100 species get contributed this time!

    Great idea! Unfortunately it’s still to hot to get out much & it seems that many of our yard birds were scattered by Gustav, but I’ll have to keep this in mind for the future.

    I love this. I tweeted about it to my tweeple. Don’t know if it will spread the word, but who knows. I submitted a scissor-tailed flycatcher.

    I added a Chaffinch photo we took earlier this year. This week’s entries all look great, but I am a bit partial to #1. 😉
